Serena and George are on holiday in Devon, UK. Serena says to George:





“I think tomorrow we can have a lie in until about 8.30, then have a shower, then have breakfast. If you don’t mind, I’ll have cereal and you can have a fry-up, but you’ll have to cook it, as I can’t stand cooking meat. After that, you can wash up, while I have a walk down to the village to get the papers. I’ll get a Telegraph for me and a Mirror for you, as I know you like doing the crossword. When I get back I thought we could play tennis for a couple of hours. Then you can drive me to the coast, where we can find a nice restaurant to have lunch. I’ll probably order a large salad and you can have a fresh seafood dish, if you like. After lunch I’ll want to relax for a while and be alone, so you’ll have to go out on your own somewhere. You should either explore the town, or go to the beach for a couple of hours. We’ll meet up again at about 5 o’clock for dinner. Then I’ll want you to take me out for a drink, or we could always go to the theatre. I think they’ve got a comedy on at the moment. After our evening out I’ll be pretty tired so I’ll probably just go straight to bed. I’m looking forward to a lovely day tomorrow, George, dear. Does everything sound alright to you?”
